Pericom's PI3EQX8908/8984 8-Differential Channels PCI Express ReDriver™ provides per channel programmable equalization, output swing, de-emphasis, and amplifier gain. The PI3EQX8908/8984 provides master/slave I2C Control to optimize performance over a variety of physical mediums by reducing Inter-symbol interference. They support eight 100-Ohm differential data I/O's and extends the signals across other distant data pathways on the user's platform. These offer programmable transmit de-emphasis (up to 9dB), transmit VOD (up to 1200mVp-p) and receive equalization (up to 32.6dB) to enable longer distance transmission in lossy copper cables (10m+), or backplanes (40"+) with multiple connectors. The receiver is capable of opening an input eye that is completely closed due to inter-symbol interference (ISI) introduced by the interconnect medium.
